In May 2018, in recognition of May as Mental Health Month, the Mississippi Department of Mental Health and its partners in the Mississippi State Department of Health, NAMI Mississippi, the Mental Health Association of South Mississippi, and the Mississippi Public Health Institute are launching an expanded public awareness campaign for adults titled “Think Again.”
These partner agencies are working to raise awareness about mental health and the connection between mental and physical health. We want to encourage Mississippians to speak up and speak out in order to change the way we think about mental health. This is why as partners we are launching this grassroots campaign.
Think Again encourages Mississippians to toss out their preconceived notions about mental health and think differently. It focuses on the fact that mental health problems are no different than other health problems. It is important for Mississippians to understand how common mental illness is and that there is nothing to be ashamed of for seeking help. It is important for Mississippians to understand that good mental health and good physical health go hand-in-hand. There is strong research that proves proper diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management can help protect your health and wellness – both physically and mentally.
